    • As from today 1st Jan 2018 we will be updating the membership packs, unfortunately this means there will be a delay in the posting out of the new packs until all the new items have been received, hopefully all the new items should be with me by the middle of this month and I will then work as quick as possible to catch up and resume the normal weekly postings.

    • Here we have a fix for our threads here at ClubPolo. If you've used photobucket over the years you would be aware of their T&C's have changed, this has caused an abundant of issues for us, especially on our older topics.

      Yeah I know!! :) Oh yeah, when you add on that it did 2 European trips the year before covering probably covering the same number of miles it's pretty good! :)

    • dvderlm
      or that so little went wrong...   (Been following  https://huyitravels.wordpress.com/)  
    • dvderlm
      That's very interesting. I suppose injection can turn off a cylinder every so often and it will still keep turning thanks to flywheel. Low volumetric efficiency at idle, so ignition advance matters to get max piston force by 14 degrees ATDC.    Thread summary: There was an MOT fail issue I caused in trying to beat the lean AFR (it had passed with smaller 26 chokes last year before I had the gauge with 36 in .7 holder). This was from using a lean-but-richer-a-high-revs custom idle holder and the small 38 idle jet with not very advanced ignition timing (still 9-ish degrees Btdc) was creating a misfire with unburnt HC. No pops, no shudder, no visible symptoms. To get through the test  I went up to 48 idle and a fairly lean .1 holder and throttle plate closed tight, but crucially increased idle advance to about 14/15 degrees Btdc. Do the same with the rich holder and idle speed was too high for my liking - but probably legal for emissions). There was also another problem that cylinder 2 idle circuit had a partial blockage, perhaps why someone sold the carbs, guessing it probably had killed a Lotus Esprit Turbo.   I'm now using the same fairly lean holder (7850.1) with a 43 idle jet as near the midpoint of 40 (surging lean at 2000rpm) and 45 (too rich at 2500rpm), because this range is not really adjustable with a screw. Well the idle air bleeds could adjust, but those are best used for cross cylinder balancing (no more than 2 bleeds open at all) so there's maximum suction on the idle circuits.   It's far smoother when setting off from rest, appears to cruise at ~15:1,  70mph motorway at 13.5 to 14.5:1, but W.O.T (once pump shot exhausted) has climbed.  So back down on the air corrector again from 210 to 200 or less to shift the point the mains come into action and sustain the fuel flow over 5000rpm.   All carbs are compromise.

      Im looking at a 6n2 gti that has recently had a new gearbox linkage and is a bit tight getting into 1st gear is that likely to be the box or an issue with the new gearlinkage? Also it is unknown if the gearbox has been changed/fixed at all any info or help would be appreacited thanks.

      which were jetted: 26 choke 107.5 main 180 air corrector 47.5 idle 40 pump 7cc per cylinder from per 20 strokes?
